Random couple of weeks... Hasimoto's and a biopsy

Life has been rather crazy the last few weeks.  A few sunday's past a friend asked what I had planned for that week and since I had NOTHING planned on my way home from church I decided to throw stuff in the car and go to one of my daughters for a while.  I was home for a week and then I got a call saying that this same daughter was having gall bladder surgery.  So back down I went to help a bit with the kiddo's so her husband could give his attentions to her.  Oh and did I mention that they put their house on the market the day I left the second time?  So we were also getting the house as ready as possible for listing pictures.
I got home on Tuesday and on Wednesday the 7th of July I had a needle biopsy of my thyroid.  The best I can describe it is lipo for the thyroid.  Stick a needle in wiggle, jiggle, suction... do that 4 times.  Glad it only had to be done on one side.   I don't really think they are going to find cancer.  I have Hasimoto's disease and that grows a lumpy bumpy thyroid.  I have had my thyroid goiter before in 2000.  The fix last time was a higher thyroid level.  I am hoping that is what happens this time.  If so I will feel better within about 48 hrs.  Kind of funny what a little endocrine level can do to a person.
